On Friday, June 16 we will be having our Annual Troop Potluck BBQ. The Troop will provide hamburgers and hotdogs. If you would like to bring something, to please bring something from your culture. No Uniforms! Families Welcomed!
Next Friday is our last Friday night meeting. If you are planning to go to summer camp we need your completed medicals before we go to summer camp, not at summer camp. The reason for this is if the medical is incomplete, your son will not be able to participate in any activities until you provide a completed medical. The medicals are online at https://www.tenmileriver.org/files/7119/TMR-Medical-Form. Please use this updated (2017) copy of the medical only as it reflects any changes.
Furthermore, please insert your health insurance information on Part B, your doctor must sign Part C where indicated and attach a copy front and back of your health insurance card. Please complete the OTC Medical Form. If your son is going for two weeks, the NYS Department Health requires you to complete the Meningococcal Meningitis Vaccination Response Form.
After next Friday’s meeting, if you still haven’t given us your medical, you will be responsible to get it to me.

Please read the linked article from Scouting magazine regarding text messages and Youth Protection. Eventhough I have spoken about this in the past, it is still going on. Youth members in Scouting can not text Adult Leaders without including another adult in the text. The other adult can be your parent. All the Adult Leaders in the Troop are aware of this policy. This policy extends to Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat or any other electronic/digital media where one to one contact can take place.
Please see the below link for the 2017 NYLT Course, which is scheduled to take place on July 2-8, 2017 at Alpine Boy Scout Camp. Please read all the information carefully as well as the NYLT Information Form and the Campership Form. As in the past, if you are interested, we are requiring you pay the full amount for the course. After you attend and complete the course, the Troop will reimburse you half the amount for the course into your Scout Account. Going to NYLT is a big commitment of your time and your willingness to work hard. If you are interested please contact Mike.
